Use Safari extensions on your Mac

Safari extensions enhance and customize the browsing experience on your Mac. Here's how to install them, uninstall them, or share them across devices.

Safari extensions add functionality to Safari, so you can explore the web the way you want. Extensions can show helpful information about a webpage, display news headlines, help you use your favorite services, change the appearance of webpages, and much more. Extensions are a great way to personalize your browsing experience.

Install extensions

Turn on extensions, turn off extensions, uninstall extensions, share extensions across devices.

Use the App Store to conveniently download and install Safari extensions. All extensions in the App Store are reviewed, signed, and hosted by Apple for your security, and they're automatically kept up to date.

Start by installing the latest macOS updates to make sure that Safari is up to date. You need Safari 12 or later to get Safari extensions from the App Store.

Open Safari and choose Safari > Safari Extensions from the menu bar.

The App Store opens to the Safari Extensions page. To download and install an extension, click Get or click the price. You might be asked to sign in with your Apple ID.

Click Install.

After the extension is installed, click Open and follow the onscreen instructions provided by the extension.

After installing an extension, follow these steps to turn it on.

Choose Safari > Settings (or Preferences).

Click Extensions.

Select the checkbox next to the extension's name. Learn what to do if you can't turn on extensions .

If you're browsing privately, or using a profile or web app

When browsing in a private window in macOS Sonoma or later, all extensions that require website access are turned off by default. To use an extension when browsing privately:

Choose Safari > Settings.

Select the extension in the sidebar, then select “Allow in Private Browsing” on the right.

Whether or not you're browsing privately, you can also restrict the extension's access to certain websites. Click the Edit Websites button to view the extension in Websites settings. From there you can allow access, deny access, or require that websites ask you for access.

When using Safari profiles , extensions for the default profile are managed in the main Extensions tab of Safari settings. Extensions for other profiles are managed in the Profiles tab, which has its own Extensions tab for each profile. By default, extensions are turned off for each new profile.

Share button

Choose Safari > Settings (or Preferences), then click Extensions.

To turn off an extension, deselect its checkbox.

If you can't determine what an extension does, or you don't expect to use it again, you should uninstall it.

To uninstall an extension, select the extension and click the Uninstall button.

Starting with macOS Ventura, iOS 16, and iPadOS 16, you can share extensions across your Mac, iPhone, and iPad:

On your Mac, open Safari and choose Safari > Settings, then click Extensions. Select “Share across devices” at the bottom of the window.

On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > Safari > Extensions, then turn on Share Across Devices.

No alt supplied for Image

To uninstall an extension from all devices, you must uninstall it on each device.

Safari no longer supports most web plug-ins. To load webpages more quickly, save energy, and strengthen security, Safari is optimized for content that uses the HTML5 web standard, which doesn't require a plug-in. To enhance and customize your browsing experience, use Safari extensions instead of web plug-ins.

8 Best Safari extensions for iPhone and iPad in 2024

Arshmeet

There is no denying that Safari is arguably the best web browser for Apple devices. However, no matter how feature-packed Safari is, it still lacks some needed functionalities. Fortunately, you can use many Extensions to add third-party functionality to the browser to improve your browsing experience and boost productivity, security, and privacy. And thanks to iOS 15, even iPhones and iPads now support Safari Extensions.

But, with so many Safari extensions offering similar functionalities, finding the right one becomes overwhelming. So, to help you out, I did the math and curated the list of the best Safari extensions for iPhones and iPads.

Table of Content

1. PiPifier – Picture-in-Picture for any video

PiPifier Safari Extension for iPhone

As the name suggests, the PiPifier Safari Extension lets you play any HTML5 video in Picture-in-Picture mode on your iPhone. To do so, play any video on YouTube, Netflix, or any other streaming platform, head to the Safari toolbar, and hit the PiPFier icon. The extension provides the same experience as the official YouTube app’s PiP mode, making it a perfect Safari Extension for users who love multitasking.

During my extensive testing, I never found it behaving abruptly or malfunctioning. However, it can sometimes take a little extra time for the PiPifier icon to become available when playing large videos such as movies.

Key features

  • Plays any video in PiP
  • Adjustable window size and position
  • Seamless multitasking experience

Price:  Free (Subscription starts at $0.99/month)

Download: PiPifier

2. Pocket – Save for later

Pocket Safari Extension for iPhone

Have you ever encountered web content, be it an article, video, or story, that you wish you could save to savor later without needing to download it? If yes, then Pocket is just the right Safari Extension for you. Pocket allows you to quickly save your favorite web content and catch up with it later whenever you have the required time.

In addition, Pocket has dark and sepia themes to give you a comfortable reading experience. These themes reduce the visual simulation so that extensive reading does not harm your eyes. Besides this, if you are a lazy reader, you can benefit from its “Listen” to make your iPhone speakers read out the articles for you.

While you can install Pocket from the App Store for free, you can choose to go premium ($4.99/month) anytime to explore features like automatic article backups, unlimited highlights, and advanced search.

  • Listen feature
  • Dark & Sepia themes
  • Advanced search

Download: Pocket

3. Grammarly – Writing assistant

Grammarly Safari extension for iPhone

Being a writer, I can not imagine a day without Grammarly. Once you install this extension, the Grammarly icon appears virtually everywhere you write text in Safari to give you real-time feedback on your writing. For the unknowns, Grammarly helps you with punctuation, spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, content tone & style, sentence formation, clarity, and more, making it a must-have Safari Extension for anyone with a keyboard, whether virtual or real.

Yes, Apple Intelligence can perform everything that Grammarly can natively, but with Apple Intelligence being reserved for iPhone 15 Pro or later models, Grammarly is here to stay.

  • Real-time feedback
  • Spell check
  • Grammar check

Price: Free (Subscription starts at $29.99/month)

Download: Grammarly

4. Clario – Privacy & security

Clario Privacy and Security extension for Safari on iPhone

While Apple is already the head of the table when it comes to users’ privacy and security, having Clario can take your online security to the next level. Calrio is an all-in-one Safari extension that protects your browsing experience on multiple fronts.

It can block ads and trackers, block spam calls, protect your device against malware, and provide a VPN connection to safeguard your online activities.

One thing you must remember about Clario is that it has only a 7-day trial period, and you’ll need to pay the monthly subscription fee ($9) to continue using it.

  • Data breach monitor
  • Spam calls blocker

Download: Clario

4. Noir – Dark Mode for Safari

Noir dark mode safari extension ios and ipados 641x450 1

Apple added Dark mode support to the iPhone with iOS 13, but many websites have yet to support this popular feature. That’s exactly where this cool Safari extension comes in handy. If you are a “The BOYS” fan, then by now, you must have realized why the extension is given the name Noir.

For someone who prefers the full-on dark mode experience across the websites while browsing Safari, Noir is the best choice. Noir allows you to force every website to operate in dark mode on iPhone and iPad , even if they don’t support it. The workings of this Safari Extension are pretty neat as it uses a smart algorithm to analyze the color pattern on a specific website, then generates a custom dark mode that syncs well with each element of the website.

  • Neat implementation
  • Custom dark style

Price: $2.99

Download: Noir

5. Adblock Plus for Safari (ABP) – Best adblocker extension

Adblock Plus iPhone Safari extension

I have yet to meet someone who says he is least bothered by unexpected ads while browsing Safari. Adblock Plus extension Safari is nothing less than a boon for such users. This extension blocks every spammy and unwanted ad you encounter while browsing Safari, enhancing your browsing experience.

The extension always blocks all the annoying ads you encounter while retaining those nonintrusive ones by default. However, you can change this setting as well. In addition to ad blocking, AdBlock Plus for Safari safeguards your private data from privacy-intrusive trackers. Besides this, this extension has an allowlist feature, allowing you to support your favorite websites by allowing them to show ads to you. You can add as many websites as you want to the allowed list.

  • Ad Blocking
  • Data & privacy protection

Price: Free

Download: Adblock Plus

6. Momentum

Momentum iPhone Safari extension

Momentum replaces your dull grey home page in Safari with a cool dashboard featuring a mesmerizing background, a good morning greeting, the current city temperature, a to-do list, and a motivational quote. This Safari Extensions ensures you stay motivated and have a feel-good mood every time you open a new start page in the browser. It also asks for your daily goal and showcases it until you check it off.

  • Quick weather and forecast info
  • Motivational quotes
  • Ability to set daily a goal/focus/intention
  • Ability to create and manage a to-do list

Price: Free (Subscription starts at $5.99/month)

Download: Momentum

7. Stop the Madness

StopTheMadness iPhone Safari extension

Stop the Madness is by far the most powerful Safari Extension on this list. This extension basically overrides every restriction a website may have implemented in its code to lock you out of Safari features such as dragging and dropping, using the Command key keyboard shortcuts, copying and pasting, and more.

Besides this, Stop the Madness has the ability to stop URL shorteners. Simply put, this extension first checks the short URL on popular websites like bit.ly and tinyurl.com, then loads the long URL instead of the short one and removes tracking tags from URLs to eliminate clickjacking.

  • Ability to stop URL shorteners
  • Bypasses website restrictions
  • Removes tracking tags

Price: $14.99

Download: Stop the Madness

8. Save to Pinterest – Best for collecting inspiration

Pinterest Safari extension for iPhone

For a creative person on a continuous hunt to curate inspiration and ideas across the web, you can’t go wrong with Pinterest’s very own Save to Pinterest extension for Safari.

safari iphone extensions

One of the handiest types of software in anyone’s quiver is the browser extension: those cool little applets that let your browser do what you want it to do. And one of the nicest things about iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 is that you can now add extensions to the Safari browser. Even though this is a new feature that launched with the latest iOS version, there are already a number of useful extensions available for you to add.

What follows is a rundown on how to add extensions to your Safari app — while we’ve illustrated the process using an iPhone, you can follow the same basic directions with an iPad. We’ve also included a sampling of some extensions you can try.

How to add extensions

  • Tap on the Settings app.
  • Scroll down to and select Safari > Extensions.
  • Any extensions that you’ve already installed will be listed here. Tap on “More Extensions” if you’d like to see what’s available in the App Store. (You can also simply go to the App Store and search on “Safari Extensions.”)

In your settings, go to Safari > Extensions to see your current extensions and get new ones.

  • Once you’ve installed your first extension, you’ll see a little “puzzle piece” icon on the left side of Safari’s address bar. Tap that, and the menu that pops up will include your current extensions plus a “Manage Extensions” selection, which lets you toggle your extensions on and off.

It’s simple to install a new extension from the App Store.

Some extensions to try

This is a small sampling of some of the extensions that you can now access via the App Store. While there are not many extensions yet available (compared to the number of extensions for, say, Chrome), it’s a pretty safe bet that there will be lots more to come over the next few months.

Amplosion ($2.99)

AMP, which is short for “Accelerated Mobile Pages,” is a web format created by Google to optimize search results for mobile browsers. However, if you’d rather not have Google tweaking the webpages you upload, you can use Amplosion to redirect the AMP links that show up in search results into normal mobile links.

Noir ($2.99)

When you’re browsing at night and you’ve set your iPhone or iPad to dark mode, you will often hit a website that is bright enough to make your eyes water. Noir allows you to set a dark mode for all the websites you visit.

1Password (subscription needed)

1Password is a well-known and respected password manager . If you’re a 1Password user, there’s no question that you’re going to want to add this one to your mobile Safari app.

Super Agent for Safari (free)

This handy extension automatically fills out a website’s cookie consent forms based on your preferences, which can save you a lot of time and irritation.

Web Inspector (free)

Something for developers: an app that lets you inspect the HTML coding of a website, modify it, debug it, and perform other essential tasks.

This Old Third-Party Sonos App Fixed My Speaker Issues

What i'm hoping to see in the ipad mini 7, microsoft excel’s web app just got a massive overhaul, quick links, managing extensions for safari on iphone and ipad, dark mode everywhere: turn off the lights or nitefall, manage your tab problem: startpage.ai, dismiss cookie permissions pop-ups: super agent, liberate your videos: pipifier, manage your passwords: 1password, disable amp and much more: hyperweb, a welcome enhancement for safari.

With the arrival of iOS 15, Safari for iPhone and iPad gained proper extensions. Apple has taken the same curated App Store approach as it did with Safari for Mac, vastly improving Safari's web browsing capabilities.

Here are some of the highlights, and a brief overview of how extensions work on iOS and iPadOS.

Extensions for the Safari browser on iPhone and iPad are managed using the App Store. You can search for new extensions as you would any other app, and updates are managed by the App Store and can be applied automatically too.

You'll even find a dedicated Safari Extensions category in the App Store app by tapping the Apps tab then scrolling down to "Top Categories" and tapping See All > Safari Extensions.

When you have enabled one or more extensions you will see a small icon in the address bar that looks like a puzzle piece. Tapping on this will show active extensions and a "Manage Extensions" option where you can enable and disable extensions quickly.

Due to Apple's careful approach to privacy in iOS , expect to be asked to grant permission to certain websites or services. Some apps require "Access" to every website they are designed to work with, while others may ask to filter your traffic if they are designed to block certain types of content.

You can go to Settings > Safari > Extensions to see a list of currently installed extensions, what each has access to, and any privacy disclosures. You can also give an extension full access to all websites here, which gets rid of the frequent permissions pop-ups.

You should make sure you fully understand the risks of allowing an app developer to access this information. A similar comparison can be made to third party keyboards , which may require "Full Access" and thus be able to store or transmit anything that is typed.

Many websites now support dark themes either with a toggle or by detecting your device's current settings. Many still don't, and that's a problem when you're trying to browse at night. Turn Off the Lights is one such free extension that attempts to remedy this.

On Safari, the app works by adding a semi-transparent dark overlay. This has the effect of dimming page content without inverting colors, so things appear much dimmer. The benefit of this approach is that it leaves page styles alone which means you're less likely to run into problems with page styles or readability.

It's not foolproof and some websites resist the extension, while the overlay can be a little temperamental at times. It also lacks the customization that you'll find on the desktop version.

Nitefall is a good alternative if Turn Off the Lights falls short. It's also free but can only be used on a limited number (25) of websites. It has three dark themes, support for maps, and site-specific settings but if you want to use it on more websites you'll need to upgrade for a one-off fee of $3.99.

Do you have a nasty tab habit? Culling hundreds of tabs using Safari's tiled view is tedious even on the latest devices. It's not possible to read the full website name or URL, and many older tab previews will be purged. Startpage.ai makes this process much easier.

Once you've set new tabs to open with Startpage.ai you'll see a neat list of all current tabs, with the most recently used at the top. Each tab title is listed with its URL, and you can even filter tabs using the search bar at the top. You can then close each tab with a tap of the red "Close" button.

Related: How to Use Tab Groups in Safari on iPhone and iPad

There's even a dark mode toggle at the top of the screen for managing your tab addiction after dark. An essential extension for anyone who never closes tabs, and something Apple should probably copy to make managing tabs in future versions of Safari less of a mess.

Cookie warnings are one of the most annoying things on the modern internet. It's not necessarily a bad thing that websites now have to ask you before tracking you or gathering information, but cookie warnings introduce additional steps to reading almost any article on the web.

Super Agent is one extension that can help. Install the extension then set your cookie preferences in the app and let Super Agent take care of the rest. The extension will action your preferences on a large number of websites (though not all websites are supported).

Cookies are split into three sections: advertising, functional, and performance. Any that don't fit these categories are automatically blocked. There's no subscription, and the accompanying app makes it easy to manage your preferences.

Previously a plug-in for the desktop version of Safari, PiPifier does one thing and it does it well: restoring picture-in-picture functionality to videos across the web. Apple added this handy feature to Safari in iOS 14, but it hasn't always worked everywhere. The feature allows you to watch a video in a frame while using other apps, and it has a transformative effect on iPhone and iPad multitasking.

Notably, YouTube blocks picture-in-picture mode on Safari for iPhone and iPad in a bid to get you to use the YouTube app. The YouTube app currently sells this feature back to you as part of a YouTube Red subscription. PiPifier restores picture-in-picture mode to the web version of YouTube, allowing you to use the full functionality of Safari with YouTube once more.

Related: How to Use Picture-in-Picture on iPhone

If you use 1Password then the app's accompanying Safari extension provides a "desktop-class" experience. Of course, the extension isn't going to be of much use to you if you use another service like LastPass or Apple's iCloud Keychain (which already integrates nicely with Safari ).

You can use the extension to autofill details like passwords , credit card details , two-factor authentication codes , and more. You can also quickly access any favorite credentials or notes, and add new items to your 1Password account.

If you want one extension that includes most of the separate enhancements listed above, Hyperweb is what you're looking for. It's the Swiss army knife of mobile Safari extensions, providing features like dark mode (by inverting colors), cookie pop-up management, picture-in-picture plus content blocking, and search engine personalization too.

Related: What Is Google AMP, and Why Is It In My Search Results?

Hyperweb also allows you to apply custom styles and run custom user scripts from websites like Stylish and Greasy Fork which can change the look and feel of some of your favorite websites. It also blocks Google's AMP (Accelerated Mobile Project) pages when visiting from a search engine, and it's currently the only free extension to do so.

If you use third-party apps for services like Twitter, Reddit, or YouTube you can force content to open in apps like Tweetbot, Apollo, or Syndromi. You can also direct Apple Maps to Google Maps, open streams in apps like VLC, or send PDFs to PDF Expert.

Hyperweb's most powerful feature allows you to create your own rules known as local enhancements. You can set "If" and "Then" parameters that target specific URLs, domains, pages, and search engines that go well beyond the included enhancements. You can only create one of these rules in the free version, or you can pay $2.99/month to unlock the extension's functionality.

Here are the best new Safari extensions to download for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 (Updated)

Avatar for Parker Ortolani

One of the flagship new features in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 is the redesigned Safari web browser. While the highlight of the new Safari is its user interface, it also gains compatibility with more powerful, Mac-like browser extensions. Now that iOS 15 is available to download, there are plenty of extensions hitting the App Store, and we’ve put together a list of some to try out.

Users of 1Password will love the new Safari extension in the latest update. The 1Password extension gives you the ability to see any password right in Safari and fill in password fields with saved ones. The extension can automatically fill in two-factor authentication codes as well. If you’re using an iPad, you will get the entire desktop 1Password experience. The extension will appear in the toolbar for you to access at any time.

The developer behind Apollo for Reddit, Christian Selig, has created a new Safari extension called Amplosion. Amplosion redirects you to the original webpage when you open an AMP link in Safari. The app also lets you keep track of how many times you’ve visited an AMP link and how many times you’ve used Amplosion to avoid one. Amplosion is priced at just $1.99 and if you hate AMP as much as I do it’s well worth it.

Christian has also created an extension that adds an HTML web inspector to Safari. The app is priced at $0.99 and is well worth it – since Apple still hasn’t added its own inspector.

CardPointers

The new CardPointers Safari extension knows what deals you may be able to take advantage of on different shopping websites. CardPointers says that it’s compatible with thousands of websites. While shopping in Safari with the extension enabled, you’ll get a notice telling you which card to use for the best deal as well as any special offers.

Cheep is an app that helps you find deals on Flights. With its latest update, it adds a Safari extension for use with Google Flights. The extension helps determine the cost per mile, distance in miles, and recommends whether or not you should book the flight. Cheep is free.

Am excited for Cheep launch for iOS 15 today! https://t.co/IgcZ7i1upe – safari extension for google tells you the miles, cost per mile, and rating – personalize airline alliances for mileage run deals – minimum fare rating you want to see – integration with TikTok and Instagram pic.twitter.com/RpJ84MYmys — Chum (@jchum) September 20, 2021

Web Inspector

This app is a simple web inspector that appears to be designed to look familiar to those who frequently use one in Chrome on the Mac. This extension lets you inspect webpages and edit their elements, enter JavaScript commands, view network requests, and more. It’s also entirely free.

I just released Web Inspector for iOS and iPadOS. It's a Safari extension for web developers to edit web pages on the fly, debug JavaScript, and more. It's free with no in-app purchases: https://t.co/u5mBSkMKnV pic.twitter.com/U1PdXv9VjK — Zhenyi Tan (@zhenyitan) September 20, 2021

HyperWeb is a new extension that adds the ability to customize just about anything you want to in Safari while browsing the web. The app lets you create blockers, personalize search, and customize the design of webpages. The app can also recommend enhancements to enable to make the extension more powerful.

Language Translator by Mate

Safari already has some translation features built-in but a new app from Gikken called Language Translator can help you take things to the next level. The app’s new Safari extension can automatically translate sites in 40 languages without any work required by the user. You can also select text and get a pop-up window if you want to translate it to another language. The app is pricey though at $29.99 but if you frequently need to translate different sites in a multitude of languages it might be worth the buy.

Vidimote is a new Safari extension that allows you to control video playback from the toolbar. The extension lets you change the speed of videos, jump ahead, switch between PiP and fullscreen, and more. Vidimote is $4.99 and available now.

StopTheMadness

StopTheMadness is a Safari extension that helps you take control of websites you frequently visit. The extensions lets you enable native iOS features like contextual menus, text editing, drag and drop, and autofill. The extension also improves privacy on the web by stopping clickjacking for different services among other things. StopTheMadness is priced at $7.99 on the App Store.

The 6 Best Safari Extensions for iPhone & iPad

safari iphone extensions

Safari extensions can boost your browsing in many ways, from blocking adds, to finding deals, and even to doing good things for the environment. Now that Safari extensions are available on your iPhone and iPad in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you may be wondering what's the best way to use them on your device, and which extensions are reliable and worthwhile. Here are the best iOS Safari extensions and what each one can do for you.

Best Safari Extensions iPad & iPhone

1. TreeClicks

TreeClicks is my personal favorite Safari extension. It partners with online retailers all across the Web to plant trees every time you make a purchase. Most sites let you see how many trees you've planted through the app (with a notable exception being Amazon, which doesn't provide the numbers) and a surprising number of sites has joined in on this project. Just add the TreeClicks extension and it'll pop up when you go to a site it partners with and give you the option to plant a tree for free with any purchase from that site. Online shop and do some good!

2. Microsoft Translator

Apple's native translating software leaves much to be desired. Language options are limited, and the ways to translate are pretty minimal. So, on this one, we're going to send you over to Microsoft. Microsoft Translator is one of the most popular translating options, and rightly so. It offers seventy language options, and can translate text on a webpage easily by activating the extension. Some browsers have a certain amount of built-in language translation, but I highly recommend getting the Microsoft Translator to make your life a lot easier.

This is a simple one - it blocks ads for you! There are a lot of ad blocking options out there, and most will get the job done for your one way or another, but AdBlock is simple, straightforward, and free. Blocking ads helps pages load faster and cuts down on the general annoyance of browsing, but some web pages won't let you load their content unless you disable your ad blocker, so you'll want to make sure to get one that's easily turned off. AdBlock is easy on/easy off, and that, combined with the fact you don't have to pay for it, is a win for me.

4. Pinterest

Pinterest is a great way to gain inspiration and collect DIY project ideas, but I regularly forget about its existence for months at a time. The Pinterest extension, however, not only keeps Pinterest in the forefront of my mind as a way to conveniently save recipes, projects, and beautiful images, but it also reminds me to actually go back and review these things next time I'm looking for something to cook or make, or just to vibe with. Even if you're not a regular Pinterest user, this extension is definitely worth checking out, because having all your inspiration in one place is excellent.

5. Grammarly

Ever have an argument derailed by a typo? Or maybe you've reread an email sent late at night only to realize your opening sentence made no sense. Whether you're aiming for professionalism or just competence in your written online presence, Grammarly has your back. This extension will scan your writing and alert you of misspellings, grammatical inaccuracies, and other points in your work you may need to correct. Whether you need help with the same few mistakes or just want to make sure nothing goes undetected, Grammarly is perfect for cleaning up your writing.

6. Honey Smart Shopping Assistant

I feel a little uneasy every time I leave the Discount Code box empty when I'm checking out online. Is there something I'm missing? Could I be saving money? Honey takes this anxiety away, by automatically scanning for deals and discount codes for a website. If Honey finds a discount or coupon for the website you're browsing, a notification will pop up and allow you to automatically apply that code. It takes the legwork out of bargain hunting and ensures you're getting the best prices for those online stores.

Manage Your Safari Extensions on iPhone and iPad

Nick deCourville

For those looking to manage their Safari extensions, doing so from an iPhone or an iPad is actually relatively easy. With Safari being Apple’s own web-browser, there’s a reason users may choose this as their go-to browser. With extensions, users are able to further customize their web experience through adding certain modifications.

Concerning extensions, there’s an entire world of possibilities. Users can have extensions that block pop-ups, help them find coupons, block content and more. Using this guide, I’ll show you how to manage your extensions in Safari on your iPhone and iPad, as well as where users can find even more extensions for their browser.

Where is Manage Extensions in Safari?

If you are looking for where to find your Safari extensions, navigating to this is actually rather easy.

On either your iPad or iPhone, perform the following actions:

  • Go to Settings > Safari

safari iphone extensions

This will show you your extensions that you have for Safari. Additionally, you can also select More Extensions to browse through what is available on the App Store. If you find one that you like, you are able to download it be selecting either its price (should it have one) or by selecting Get. You will then just need to follow the onscreen instructions.

It’s worth mentioning that any extensions you install on your iPhone or iPad will also appear as Safari settings on additional devices that are signed into the same Apple ID. This can make them easier to access and download.

Suggestions for Safari Extensions

When it comes to using extensions on Safari, some can be particularly more helpful than others. Personally, there’s a couple of free extensions that I would recommend.

  • Turn Off the Lights for Safari : This free extension enables Dark Mode across the web. Additionally, this extension also allows users to customize what it and what isn’t in Dark Mode. This app allows pages with video to darken to focus more on the streaming content: giving users a theatre experience directly on their device. There’s plenty of more options as well, and with the extension being free, there really isn’t a reason not to try it.
  • Ka-Block : This is a free content blocker that is also open-source. Using this app, users can prevent both ads and tracking scripts from slowing down any webpages that a user visits. They also have an extension for Mac as well.
  • Checkmate : This free app helps users find deals while they shop online by automatically applying deals when the user goes to checkout. How the app works is that it tracks deals online stores send out, and then collects unused discounts and gives them directly to you.

You can find all of these extensions through the More Extensions option as outlined above.

How do I Remove Unwanted Extensions from Safari?

If you don’t like a particular Safari extensions, you don’t have to keep it around. Unfortunately, uninstalling these extensions can be a bit weird, but luckily there is a way to do it.

If you are looking to remove a Safari extension, from your device, simply follow these steps:

Time needed:  1 minute

How do I Edit Safari Extensions on iPhone and iPad?

When it comes to managing and editing your extensions, users also have options. Being able to set your own permissions and settings through an extension is possible, users just need to ensure that they are navigating to the right place.

On an iPhone, the easiest way to manage extensions is by going through Settings > Safari > Extensions . Click on the extensions you want to modify, then select Extension Settings . The extension may need to be turned on to find this option.

For those on an iPad, not only can you follow the same steps for the iPhone from above, but you can also tap the puzzle-icon next to the right-side of the search field and select Manage Extensions . This also allows you to set permissions within the extension.

Working with Safari Extensions on iPhone and iPad

Being able to modify Safari through extensions can be extraordinarily helpful for a majority of users. By using extensions, users can create an experience that is custom-tailored specifically to their needs. Using this guide, users can easily install new extensions, and then manage them directly from their settings.

How you choose to surf the web is ultimately up to you. However, there are way to customize this experience in a manner that ensures you’re getting the most out of Safari. Whether you’re using your iPad or your iPhone to browse the web, users still have the option of adding extensions to Safari to create the best experience possible for them. Using this guide, be sure to give extensions a try.

The Complete Guide to iOS Safari Extensions + the 10 Best for iPhone and iPad (Dec 2021)

safari iphone extensions

It's easy to take browser extensions for granted. You find a browser extension, usually for free, that solves some really helpful problem for you. Then you set it up and it just works from that point on. So when do you realize you take browser extensions for granted? When you're browsing the internet on your phone and  don't  have all of those little useful, helpful tools at your disposal.

Fortunately, that's starting to change. In late September 2021,  Apple  rolled out iOS 15 for  iPhones  and  iPads . And one of its biggest new features are browser extensions for the Safari web browser. For the first time ever, a world of browser extensions is now open to Apple mobile users.

Well... "world" might be a bit generous right now. There aren't a ton of extensions available yet, as companies are still developing them and figuring out how to make their desktop extensions viable with the smaller screen and different web browsing behavior on mobile. Still, there are plenty of great extensions out already and certainly plenty more to come.

(Side note: Yes, there are some  Android  browsers that use extensions already, although the default Chrome browser isn't one of them. You can use apps like the Kiwi browser or  Brave browser  on your Android phone to use extensions. However, most, if not all, of the extensions in those cases haven't been optimized for mobile, so your experiences could be all over the place. As for iPhone and iPad users, this is truly the first opportunity to use browser extensions — and these extensions are built specifically for mobile.)

In this article, we'll cover everything you need to know about iOS Safari extensions: How to install them, whether they're safe, and the best ones you should add to vastly improve your iPhone and iPad browsing experience.

Tutorial: How to Install Safari Extensions in iOS 15

Here's a full walkthrough on how to install Safari browser extensions on your iPhone or iPad, starting with how to find them and going all the way through how to use these iOS Safari extensions on a day-to-day basis.

Where to find iOS Safari extensions on your iPhone or iPad

There are two primary ways you can find Safari browser extensions: by going through Safari settings or by searching in the App Store. They each have their own merits, although we recommend the Settings route to start for a more curated and thorough experience.

Our recommended method for finding iOS Safari extensions is through the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Go to Settings > Safari > Extensions and click "More Extensions." If you're not seeing the "More Extensions" option, it's because you're not running iOS 15+ — you're probably still on iOS 14 or earlier.

ios safari extensions

From that screen, you can see Apple's curated lists of the best Safari web extensions for your iPhone or iPad as well as the lists of the Top Free and Top Paid extensions. 

(You can also find this section in the App Store by going to Apps, scrolling down to Top Categories, clicking See All, and finding Safari Extensions in that list. That method is more byzantine than the Settings route, which is why we recommended it.)

This is a great search method to see the best of the Safari extensions that are out there — and what Apple is recommending (usually a strong endorsement of quality, utility, and design). However, it's not  the  exhaustive list of all of the available extensions.

You can find even more Safari extensions with an App Store search. The process is as simple as searching for "safari extensions iPhone," "safari browser extensions," or even just "safari extensions." This is good for finding more obscure extensions but, oddly, worse for finding some of the bigger names; we found some Safari app extensions, for whatever reason, didn't appear in the search results.

How to install Safari extensions on your iPhone or iPad

The first step to adding a Safari app extension is just like adding any app to your phone or tablet: Just hit the "GET" button (or the button with the price on it) and the extension will download and install. From there, click "OPEN." That will take you to the extension's companion app. In some cases, the app will walk you through the extension installation process — because, right now, it's actually a bit of a labyrinth to install Safari extensions.

ios safari extensions

In case the app  doesn't  take you through the process, here's what you need to do.

Go to any browser tab in Safari and tap on the "AA" symbol on the left side of the URL bar.

Tap the puzzle piece next to "Manage Extensions."

Tap the slider to turn on the extension.

ios safari extensions

Next up, you'll need to grant permissions to the Safari browser extension you're setting up. We'll get into privacy considerations later in this article, but, in general, iOS Safari extensions work like the browser extensions you use on your desktop computer. That is: They request some pretty serious things (like access to all of your browsing data), so make sure you trust the company behind the extension and you're comfortable with granting that level of access.

To review permissions:

Click the "Review" button in the top right of your screen.

Decide how much access you wish to allow. If you trust the extension and don't want to be annoyed by constant permission pop-ups, you'll want to click "Always Allow..." and then "Always Allow on Every Website."

How to use iOS Safari extensions after they're installed

With that, your extension is set up.

Depending on the extension, it will either pop up automatically on relevant sites, or you can manually trigger it in the future by tapping the puzzle piece on your URL bar, then tapping on the extension in the menu.

The 11 Best iOS Safari Browser Extensions (Updated November 2021)

Simplycodes (free).

ios safari extensions

SimplyCodes is a browser extension that finds the best coupon codes when you're shopping online and allows you to apply them at checkout. SimplyCodes is one of the first popular desktop shopping extensions to receive a native iOS app and sports the largest number of verified, active promo codes for the largest number of merchants. (Editor's note: The team behind Knoji is also the team behind SimplyCodes. But our editorial team has full discretion over whether or not to include it in our content and we wouldn't put it here if it wasn't a truly outstanding iOS Safari extension.)

Acorns (free)

ios safari extensions

Acorns  is a very popular micro-savings app and  savings goal app . It began as a way to invest the spare change from your purchases — you buy something for $7.49, the app automatically invests 51 cents for you. The extension works a bit differently and operates on a rewards system. When you shop at one of 12,000 or so brands, Acorn will automatically give you a percentage of your purchase back as an investment reward. When you're on one of those brands' websites on Safari, you'll get a pop-up from   Acorns  letting you know how much money they’ll add to your account and invest when you shop on that site. 

AdBlock Pro for Safari (free / premium $10/yr)

In the early days of iOS Safari extensions, a good majority of the options are ad blockers. Ad blocking is a major, if ethically gray, use of browser extensions on desktop, so it's logical that ad blockers made the early leap to mobile. Our pick for the best of the bunch is   AdBlock Pro  for two reasons. One, it’s always been a Safari-only app, meaning it's been designed specifically and solely with the Apple browser in mind. And two, its free plan should be more than enough for most people.

Noir ($2.99)

ios safari extensions

Dark mode just keeps getting more popular, but not every single website offers a dark mode option. With   Noir , you can essentially (and automatically) force dark mode on any site you're browsing. Noir has plenty of configuration options so you can tweak how sites look and a solid privacy policy that states it's not collecting any of your web browsing data.

Language Translator ($29.99)

Language Translator  has an eye-popping price, but for some people, it might be worth that and more. Language Translator is a sophisticated translation app that's now expanded to include a Safari extension as well. With this Safari app extension, you can translate words and websites to and from 103 different languages. Once you have the extension installed, you can highlight any text on a website (or a full page) and have it translated instantly. And while the price is high, it's just a one-time fee and not a subscription.

CardPointers ($3.99/mo)

If you've got a bunch of different credit cards,   CardPointers  can be a very handy iOS Safari extension for making sure you wisely pick the right one for each purchase. You'll enter all of your  credit cards  into the app (but no account info, which is nice) and when you shop, the CardPointers extension will let you know which card you should use to maximize the rewards points and bonuses you'll get back.

PiPifier (free)

If you've gotten used to watching a video while you browse the internet, now you can do that on your iPhone as well.   PiPifier  is an iOS Safari extension that lets you open a video in a small picture-in-picture window while you browse. It's a free app that makes it easier to multitask on your phone the way you do on your computer. 

StartPage.ai (free)

ios safari extensions

StartPage  is a very lightweight Safari app extension — it just has one simple function, but it could really help you get a bit more organized. It's very common to have tons of tabs going in mobile Safari — and no one wants that kind of clutter. With StartPage, whenever you go to open a new tab in Safari on iOS, you'll see a list of all of your open tabs. You can close them or switch to them; that way, rather than opening a new tab, you can just go to an old tab and use that one instead.

1Password ($3.99/mo)

1Password  is a very popular  password management  app, and its Safari extension makes it even easier to use on your iPhone or iPad. With the   1Password  iOS Safari extension, you can automatically fill in your logins and passwords on all of the sites you visit. Typing in passwords on the small iOS keyboard is never fun — especially if you have to try multiple passwords — so the 1Password app should immediately save you lots of time.

Apollo for Reddit (free)

When you're on  Reddit  on iOS Safari it  constantly  prompts you to open the pages in the Reddit app. If you don't use the official Reddit app and you use the popular alternative   Apollo  as your Reddit client, the Apollo for Reddit extension will change the prompt to allow you to open the links in their app instead.

If you'd just like to get rid of the Reddit prompts altogether, there's also an iOS Safari extension called   Viewwit  (99 cents) that gets rid of those popups and banners.

Grammarly ($29.99/mo)

Grammarly  is expensive, but if you regularly write emails, documents, blog posts, or anything else on your phone, it could be worth $1-a-day.   Grammarly  already has a custom keyboard for iOS that you can use across different apps, but if you want to use your regular keyboard on Safari, the extension allows you to do so. The extension will correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation as you type on the standard Apple keyboard (or any keyboard you may want to use) in Safari.

Honorable mentions

Just missing the cut are:   Bring , a shared shopping list app;   Amplosion , which turns Google AMP pages into regular web pages; and   Super Agent , which automatically handles those "cookie consent" pop-ups for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About iOS Safari Extensions

Here are answers to the most common and most popular questions about iPhone and iPad Safari extensions.

Does Safari iOS support extensions?

Yes, as of iOS 15, which was released in late September 2021. iOS Safari extensions will be included in all subsequent releases of iOS as well.

(If you're thinking: Why are you answering this question, that's what this article is about, right? Well, yes, that's what this article was about. But this  is   the most common question, so we thought we needed to answer it for the sake of anyone who stumbled to this article confused.)

Are iOS safari extensions safe? Will Safari extensions be able to see what I'm browsing?

With any browser extensions, whether on your computer or, now, your phone/tablet, you're taking at least  some  privacy leap of faith. Most Safari web extensions will need access to your browsing data in order to work. We have two pieces of advice. One, make sure before you install an iOS Safari extension (or, frankly, an extension on your desktop computer as well), you look into the makers of the extension so you can be sure you trust them. You should also examine what they say they'll do with your data. Will they store it? Will they sell it? Or will they just use it in the moment then forget it immediately? And two, Apple  does  have high (albeit not infallible) standards for the apps they allow in their App Store and especially apps they showcase in their curated lists. So you, perhaps, can have a little more faith that Safari app extensions in Apple's App Store are safer than random extensions you might come across elsewhere.

Will iOS extensions drain my battery?

Safari browser extensions on iOS should not have an impact on battery life. (And, in cases where they block unwanted content on websites, they might even help your battery a little bit.) It's unlikely you'll see any noticeable impact on iPhone or iPad battery life as a result of iOS Safari extensions.

Do iOS Safari extensions work on Apple Watch?

Safari extensions will not work on your  Apple Watch  — and it's hard to imagine they ever will. After all, it's tough to do any web browsing on the small watch screen, so it would be nearly impossible to squeeze an extension pop-up onto that screen as well.

What version of iOS do I need for Safari browser extensions?

You need to be running iOS 15 or later to use Safari web extensions on your iPhone or iPad. In fact, if extensions aren't working, it's likely because you have an older version of iOS installed.

You can see what version of iOS you're using by going to Settings > General > About and looking at "Software Version." If you're using an older iOS, you can run an iPhone iOS update or iPad iOS update by going to Settings > General > Software Update. 

What iPhone/iPad do I need for Safari browser extensions?

You'll need an iPhone or iPad capable of running iOS 15 to use iOS Safari extensions. That means you'll need an iPhone 6s or newer to use Safari extensions iPhone style; and an iPad Air 2 or newer to use Safari extensions iPad style. 

Do browser extensions work on Firefox for iOS? 

While extensions currently work for Safari on iOS as of iOS 15, extensions are not currently available for Firefox on iOS. However it is possible we could get extensions for the Firefox browser on iOS one day — they might just look different than the extensions on Firefox desktop. Apple has locked down the use of browser extensions pretty significantly; however they have been working with Mozilla on universal extensions that could work across all mobile browsers.

Do browser extensions work on Chrome for iOS?

You can get some browser extensions for Safari as of iOS 15, but not for Google Chrome. Apple has very tight rules about extensions on mobile browsers and focused on Safari's extensions first. However, Apple has had discussions with Google (along with Mozilla and Microsoft) about developing a set of universal mobile extensions which will work across all browsers. There's no word on when those might be released.

When are more extensions coming?

More iOS Safari extensions are showing up on a daily basis. Like any new category in the Apple App Store, expect massive growth in the number of available apps over the course of the coming weeks and months.

iOS 18 Safari — biggest new features for your iPhone

Highlights and a redesigned Reader add some smarts to Safari on your iPhone

iOS 18 logo on an iPhone 15 Pro

Safari, Apple's built-in web browser across its different devices, won't get a radical overhaul as part of iOS 18 . But even just two big changes to the iPhone's default browser hint at Apple's larger strategy of leaning into machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Both major additions to Safari in iOS 18 promise to skim web pages and pull out the details you need. The idea, explains Beth Dakin, Apple's senior manager of Safari software engineering, in Apple's WWDC 2024 video is to offer "easier ways to discover content and streamline your browsing."

Even better, while the new Safari features do turn to machine learning, they're not part of the Apple Intelligence capabilities being introduced across Apple devices later this year. That means Safari's improvements will be available on more phones than just the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max , plus whatever iPhone 16 models come out later this fall.

With that in mind, here's what to expect from iOS 18 Safari once you upgrade to the new iPhone software, whether that's when the full version comes out later this year or Apple makes the iOS 18 public beta available in July.

iOS 18 Safari: Highlights

Highlights feature in iOS 18 Safari

Think of Highlights, the biggest of the two improvements to iOS 18 Safari, as a kind of hyper-focused summary tool. Instead of merely summarizing what's on the page, though, Highlights uses machine intelligence to identify the key bits on information on a particular page and calls them out in a pop-up window as you browse. 

An example Apple uses throughout its iOS 18 preview shows a web page for a hotel where Highlights has called up a window showing the hotel's location on a map, plus quick links for driving directions or placing a call to the hotel. Other examples of Highlights include Wikipedia summaries of a person, playback links for songs, or summarized reviews for a movie or TV show.

It's unclear from Apple's demo whether Highlights appear automatically in Safari, or if you need to tap a button to get the Highlights window to pop-up. Footnotes on Apple's iOS 18 summary page indicate that the feature will only work with U.S. English sites, at least initially.

iOS 18 Safari: Reader

Reader in iOS 18

The Reader tool in iOS 18 Safari also picks up some summarization skills, giving you the opportunity to read a quick overview of a web page when you switch to Reader mode. Reader takes things a step further by generating a table of contents for a web article that lets you see how a page is organized. Presumably, you'll also be able to jump to specific sections of the article.

Galaxy AI tools on board the best Samsung phones add summarization features, so it's good to see them get baked into iOS 18 as well. A concise summary of a web page that you've stumbled upon can give you a better idea of what an article is about, while a table of contents can help you more easily drill down to the parts of a topic that interest you.

The summarization tools in Reader appear to be limited to English in the initial iOS 18 release, though regional support is far more extensive. Besides the U.S., Apple promises availability in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and the U.K.

Other Safari changes beyond the iPhone

Safari preview at WWDC 2024

Safari is available across Apple's different platforms, and there are some improvements coming to the web browser that are available for Safari on other devices. Specifically, Mac users who upgrade to macOS Sequoia will get a new way of watching web-based videos with a new Video Viewer that automatically detects when there's video on a page. Video Viewer breaks that out into a separate window with its own playback controls; click away, and the viewer becomes a separate picture-in-picture window.

Along with the Highlights and Reader additions, Safari on macOS Sequoia also promises performance improvements. In fact, Apple says the updated Mac version will be the world's fastest browser, with up to four hours more battery life than Google's Chrome browser on streaming video.

iOS 18 Safari outlook

Safari's seen more substantial changes in previous iOS updates, but that's not to dismiss the importance of what Apple's doing in iOS 18. With both Highlights and Reader leaning heavily on machine learning to power their new summary tools, iOS 18 Safari offers a taste of what Apple hopes to deliver throughout the iPhone, only without the stringent system requirements that the Apple Intelligence features demand.

This Safari extension will show you any Netflix IMDb rating before you watch

Make sure you only watch good shows

Netflix app on iPad

Apple loves to tout that Safari is one of the best browsers for Mac , since it was made specifically for Apple's computers. And Safari does have an awful lot to offer by way of features. That said, it's not perfect. And, like any browser, installing Safari extensions can help you add extra functionality to the browser. And this new offering is going to help make sure you never watch a bad Netflix movie again.

Regularly find yourself endlessly scrolling through Netflix, only to settle on a dud of a movie? That's where Trim comes in, a new Safari extension for the best Macs shows IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes ratings directly on Netflix and Prime Video, so you can make an informed choice before committing to a two-hour time stink.

You can grab Trim on the App Store here . It’s available for free – because who wouldn’t want to up their Netflix game without spending a penny?

Trim Safari Extension screenshot on Netflix

What else does Trim do?

Trim is like your very own snobby film critic that filters out the rubbish. If a movie or series has a low rating, Trim can fade it out, letting you focus on what other people think is worth watching. No more accidentally clicking on that one-star horror flick when you’re looking for a spine-tingling masterpiece. The extension doesn't just work with Netflix, it'll show the same ratings on Prime Video, Disney+, and others as well.

And the features within Trim are pretty impressive. Trim displays popular genres right on Netflix's homepage, movies page, and series page. You can sort titles by rating, release year, and popularity. Plus, if you’re the kind of person who loves a clutter-free interface, you can even remove items from Netflix's grid view. For those who appreciate a good rating trifecta, Trim also shows Metacritic scores alongside IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes.

In short, Trim makes your streaming experience smarter and less frustrating. Instead of relying on vague synopses and misleading thumbnails, you get the cold, hard truth about what’s worth watching. And let’s be honest, we all need a bit of that in our lives.
